FOREIGN MISSIONS The Pictured Story of Our Work
HE Board of Foreign Missions in the pictorial pages which
follow, has tried to give the readers of The ASSEMBLY
Herald a glimpse, a bird's-eye view, as it were, of its manifold work on the foreign field. It has been impossible to go into detail, but a few of the phases of work it has attempted to show are represented in these pictures.
Page I and Page II the educational work of the Board from the Kindergarten of Japan-No. 5 on page 24-up to the Forman Christian College of India, No. I on page 1. The kindergarten, the primary school-No. 5, page 1 and No. 5, page 2—the teacher at work with his class, No. 2, page 1, and the industrial work of our schools in different countries—page 2, four pictures.
Page III gives a glimpse of the medical work in its varied forms from the primitive mode of treating a surgical case in AfricaNo. 1, to the ward in the David Gregg Hospital in Canton, China, No. 4-The Christian teaching given in the hospitals is pictured in No. 5, while the humanitarian work of the medical missionary is brought out in bold relief by the third picture of this page where we have the doctors ready for their work among those stricken by the plague.
Page IV. treats of the evangelistic side of the work. Preaching al a country fair in Korea, the missionary ready for a trip in Syria, -The Presbytery tent in China where candidates for admission to the church may be examined as to their fitness. From Laos land the missionary camp: and as a result of the evangelistic effort a group of Christian Endeavorers.
Page V deals also with the evangelistic side—see cuts No. 1 and 2. but also gives a hint of another phase of the busy missionary's life. The work of translation and the press by means of which the Gospel is sent far and wide. We have chosen the view of the large Mission Press at Shanghai with its native typesetters engaged in setting up the English type, and a view of the office of this same press where the missionary must needs spend hours of each day in keeping accounts and attending to the more secular side of the work which leads, however, to the same blessed end—that of reaching the perishing multitudes with the Word of God.
The output of this single press for the year reported on at the last Assembly, was 68,705,370 pages of which 34,269,450 were Scriptures, hymn books, catechisms and tracts.
